. if you don't believe me, look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% verses russia at 4%. china at 7% to 8%. we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get us working. he's put us on a road to europe. europe doesn't work in europe. i want to get us back to being america where people come here, build enterprises here. we fulfill american dreams. we keep the hope alive in america. [ cheers and applause ] and this matters. you know this matters. this counts. it counts for the 23 million people struggling to get a job, getting a better job today. it counts for the young peoe. today we wonder whether that's true. the majority of americans don't think that's the case. this matters. there's one more sense in which it matters. that's what i began with, and that is our military capability. our ability to defend our liberty and the liberty of our friends around the world, with whom we trade and with whom we trade and whose prosperity depends on our trade. i was in poland and got the chance to meet a hero. i came in and he said, mr.
number one. and a few other domestic policy flashpoints as well. the economy is due to take up three of the six segments that are laid out for tonight, with one segment each devoted to health care, the role of government and leadership/governing style. and by a pretty wide margin going in right now, the voters expect president obama is going to outdebate his opponent, but both men have taken great pains to downplay their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're
they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president obama seems to have the advantage in this state, and, of course, the dnc held their convention there back in 2008. how much does it matter to have the hometown advantage, to have the people who are sitting in that audience and perhaps you are ahead in the polls? does it make that much difference in a debate setting? >> well, he certainly has a little bit of a lead right now, according to the latest cnn poll of po
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to
be playing into it. i think more of this is about the economy. polls in these states and nationwide are indicating people are starting to get a little more optimistic about the economy, and look at this, who would do a better job of the economy, this is from the quinnipiac new york times cbs polls you showed. the president with a slight advantage in all three of their states. a different story, mitt romney used to have the advantage on the economy. >> back to the ohio/florida scenario. cnn sees obama likely to win, 237 electoral votes come election day. were he to also win ohio and florida, he would have the total 284. the magic number is 270. there is no guarantee he wins both of those states or either state for that matter you see where i'm going. >> i see where you're going. the polls we're looking at give the advantage to the president, makes mitt romney's pathway to 270 much tougher. this is rich biesen, the political director for mitt romney. he doesn't see it that way. take a listen. >> they're sort of spiking the ball at the 30 yard line now. look, ohio, there is still 42 da
, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. if you've had enough, ask your dermatologist about enbrel. >>> the economy is one of the biggest issues for voters this year. so, cnn money asked 17 experts and the question they posed was this. who would be better for the economy, mitt romney, would it be barack obama. let's bring in alison kosik. she has the answers. s she's standing by for me at the new york stock exchange. they said who? >> they reluctantly said, brooke, romney. romney would be better for the economy. here's what's sad about this survey that cnn money did, these economists weren't excited about either one of them when asked who would be better for the economy. they asked 17 economists. nine picked romney three picked obama. the math doesn't add up because five couldn't commit to anybody because they said it didn't matter. they couldn't figure out who would fix the economy on their own. they just weren't enthusiastic about one candidate or the other. >> but, you and weir jui were t last week, alison, we learned president obama is a job creator. why isn't that helping him with the economis
the military but the economy, too. according to president obama, there is such a thing as economic patriotism. >> during campaign season you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> it's become sort of a democratic man tra. in 2008, it was said the richer needs to pay more. >> no wone has more patriotism than even money needs a passport. summers on the beaches of the cayman islands and winters on the slopes of the swiss alps. >> ouch. the romney campaign is firing back as in, hey, a humongous deficit is not patriotic. >> this is a land where economic freedom has allowed people to pursue their dreams and in doing so and achieving success, they lift us as a nation, they give us jobs, i will not apologize for success here and i will never apologize for america abroad. >> how's that for economic patriotism, whatever that is? so the talk back question for you this morning, is there such a thing as economic patriotism, faceb
. we have these pro growth solutions for opportunity and upward mobility in the dynamic economy. you have the president promising four more years of stagnation and dependency. >> paul ryan acknowledges what he calls missteps and admitting mistakes, missteps. is that a deliberate strategy? >> i don't know if it's a smart strategy. but i know it's a realistic strategy. obviously they're down in the polls. i think he's being humble. i think he's being realistic. he's admitting there's been mistakes maitt romney said he didn't make the best articulation when speaking of the 47%. they do need to eat a little humble pie and admit things are not all rosie. we can't deny what the polls are showing. we may be able to argue with the polls a little bit, but things need to pick up. i think paul ryan admitting that this morning is a good thing and refreshing from a politician. >> effectively what he's doing is he's telling people what they already know. he's saying, look, we've done it. we don't have to talk about it. l.z, let's get to anna's point. mitt romney did speak about the 37% of obama vo
be a lot of talk by president obama about romney's 47% quote and from romney about the stagnant economy and libya. both candidates must address the issues in a concise, personal and friendly way. if you ask comedian darrell hammantd, that's tough when you're scripted. >> i think these guys use coaches which is odd to me. you know, the less coached you are, the more natural you are. the more natural you are, the more personal you are, the more personal you are, the more general you are. >> in other words, zing away. but deliver them like -- i don't know. joe the plumber? the talk back question for you today, will the presidential debate be a game changer? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of
at a military acted any many pennsylvania romney hammered away at the president over the economy. >> i have to tell you that i don't know how a single person who goes to this institution could consider voting for the incumbent for president. i say that for this reason. if they want to go in the military, why, he is planning on cutting our military by about $1 trillion over the next decade. if they want to go on to either get a job directly or go on to a four-year college and come out with a gee, you know that 50% of kids coming out of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical g
left behind a wife and two daughters. >>> need a sign that the economy is picking up? belly up to the bar. beer sales are up for the first time since 2008. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. is this a bellwether? >> it is, just like lipstick. lipstick sales went up during the recession. they couldn't spend big on other things. beer is a great indicator. it looks like young men seem to be pushing up beer sales. brewers have said that beer sales have struggled over the past few years because young, blue-collared guys were hit hard by the the recession. now there's a recovery. unemployment rate is falling for men in their 20s. more jobs means more money to spend. wall street journal says beer sales are actually up 2% this year, following three years of decline. it really say fun way of looking at the economy, of how beer is affected by the way the economy is doing. overall -- you're laughing. overall it's typically considered recession proof. it's cheap. but for $8 or $9, you can get a nice six pack at home without breaking the bank. and president obama also has a hom
economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to sucssthis country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in sothing called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules. we believe in america where no matter what you look ke, no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, u n make it if y. [ cheers and applause ] that's the country i believe in. >>> jim acosta is covering the romney campaign. jim, one of the interesting things back in 2008 in covering president obama, you knew that there was a sense that he could possibly win when people started showing up in virginia. i mean that was really th turning pot. they thought perhaps we have this th
beyond the bluster. we really have to look at this man in terms of his economy, which is in very very serious trouble. so he can bluster he can threaten. of course a big issue is his nuclear program, etc. but in the end he's a man in trouble. he's going to be out of office in june. right now he has high unemployment, high inflation because of sanctions. they can't sell their oil very well. there are a lot of problems on his plate. >> this may be his swan song, but what do you expect will be his main mission at that lectern today? fire and brim stone to make people back home happy or maybe a legacy among all of these world leaders? a legacy among the u.n.? >> you know, i think actually it could be that legacy because after all he thinks of himself as a world states man and a leader of the country. he is a leader for the nonaligned nations. he thinks of himself as a leader of those people those countries. his message is the united states is oppressing the world. it is you know, an imperial list country and i, the leader of iran, am leading the charge against imper
if you could survive on food stamps? >> first of course is that we are living through the brutal economy, too many people that i lead, the sixth largest city in america are living through these incredibly difficult time. so when the arizona community action association issued a challenge to me to live off of food stamps to get a better sense of what people were going through, i couldn't say no to try to be a better leader and policymaker. >> so you with respect at all reluctant, what did you discover in your first shot at seeing what you could buy and what you couldn't buy with the food stamp. >> $29 for an entire week of eating doesn't go far, and i had to live off of a lot of stuff that i usedo eat when i was a college kid when i didn't have much of a budget. i had to skip a few meals in order to make the budget work. i ended up losing a few pounds which is not what the program is supposed to do. so i learned a lot and i think it will make me a better policymaker. >> what would you take from that experience, you said makes you a better policymaker, can you think of something off the ba
